I found a schematic for the older MC-460. I have not seen one for the newer MC-10.
The MC-460 has a 18 volt DC supply.
Vcc is the AC Neutral power in.
Ground is through a few diodes, current limiting capacitor, resistor and small coil to the AC Line power in.
I don't believe there is a great amount of current through the On and Off switches. The controller IC has a high input impedance and would not need a large amount of current to drive them.

Is this 8 button switch what you were thinking of?

KeypadLinc 2484D:

If it had X10 control, that would be nice for some setups.

The link from Home Depot you posted is misleading.
It is showing the 2484D {there also was an 2484S Relay type}. That had a timer function buttons and is long gone discontinued.
The Home Depot in the last photo is showing the new part number 2334-222. That does not have any timer functions, just a main On/Off pair and four buttons that can be linked to other Insteon devices. It does not support X10 addresses on the buttons.

The 2486D was the older keypad dimmer. Where the buttons did not set time outs but could control Insteon and X10 devices.

So there is an Insteon only switch that can do push button timer events but none that can do X10.  The two features (X10 and timer) are/were both available, but they never overlapped.  Correct?

There are no Insteon modules that have a builtin timer feature.
They where discontinued a long time ago.
